Blueberry Oatmeal Bake

This came from Skinnytaste. My whole family loved it which makes it a winner in my book. It is easy, healthy and satisfying. This is perfect to make ahead for the week or for a weekend breakfast treat. When I made it, I doubled the recipe (except 2 bananas – that amount was fine to cover the […]

Detox Part 2

I cannot stress the importance of “detoxing” your body and home through smarter choices in products. I am writing it in steps so its not too overwhelming and costly to change everything at once. See Detox Part 1 for changing toothpaste, deodorant and soap. Part 2 is changing over Household products. I absolutely LOVE this Thieves Cleaner. It actually makes me want to […]

Coconut Cake Yogurt

I like this breakfast because it is filled with healthy fat and protein to keep you satisfied for a few hours. It is also very low in sugar! The coconut oil helps smooth the taste of plain yogurt. Not only is this perfect in the morning, but also if you are looking for a “dessert” […]

Amy and Jenn are examples of this. They are friends inspiring each other to be healthier!  They are both juggling their busy lives […]

These chemicals can affect your hormones, thyroid and memory; contribute to cancer, skin problems, headaches and more. Start eliminating the chemicals that go into or onto your body and start to live a “cleaner” life. It can be overwhelming to change […]

Black Bean Salsa

I love Mexican food! Especially when it involves cilantro and beans! My mom made this recipe (passed down from a friend) the other night and I’ve already made it myself. It makes a large amount, so I used the leftovers on salads all week and that was delicious too.     Ingredients: 1/2 red onion, […]

Chicken & Wild Rice Salad

This chicken salad is perfect for making at the beginning of the week and adding each day to some greens for a quick and easy lunch. It is delicious, filling and balanced. The lemon makes it refreshing too! If you want to add a bit more flavor, top with some dill.   Ingredients: 1 cup […]
